Solitary, strangely shaped Bronze Age monument

Probably erected at some point during the Bronze Age, this tall stone cuts a solitary figure standing alone amid fields on the outskirts of Holyhead. Measuring about 9ft/2.7m in height, the stone is notable for its unusual shape, seeming to twist around as it rises upwards from the ground.
